ACME Studio pens are functional pieces of pop culture and design that lend inspiration to everyday life. Constant reminders to keep an open mind, ACME’s tasteful and fun pens embody ideas from some of the world’s most groundbreaking design minds.
ACME Studio is a design company that was founded in 1985 by Adrian Olabuenaga and his wife, Lesley Bailey. The company began when Adrian and Lesley launched a limited edition jewelry collection with Peter Shire, a member of the world-renowned Memphis Design Group. Writing utensils become a natural complement to ACME’s ideal of inspiring creativity in daily life, and became a waypoint for the company to collaborate with creatives in every industry.
ACME’s commitment to design led to such collaborations as with Frank Lloyd Wright, Stefan Sagmiester, and Michael Graves, to name a few. The diversity of artists from a multitude of design backgrounds ensures ACME’s outstanding catalog of unique pens that live up to the collaborator’s standards.
